Lowe's Education Grant

Vanalden received a grant of $4,050.00 from the Lowe's Home Improvement Company. Mrs. Silberkleit, 2nd grade teacher, submitted an application few months ago and received notice recently that Vanalden was approved for the grant to be used to build a school garden. Thank you to Mrs. Silberkleit for her hard work to make this project happen for our school and to educate our students about gardening. Once again, we have teachers who go above and beyond for our students.
